dc.description.abstract The construction of a building requires that the sequence of operations to be planned in one way or another. In the last 100 years a variety of planning techniques have been developed. Common methods amongst builders are "Bar Charts" and various network analysis techniques. The recent advent of powerful personal computers linked to these analysis methods have opened new horizons. Just how are these techniques being used amongst the members of the Master Builder's Association of the Western Cape? A survey amongst members showed that the use of planning techniques and attitudes towards them were similar to that reported in literature. Network analysis techniques were used on about 10% of projects. Firms with personal computers used about 7% of computer time on network analysis techniques. Visits to firms showed that the techniques were used in a different way in each of the firms visited. en_ZA
